Newton GenNEXT | All Decked Out
Coming up on This Old House
Our apprentices have demoed the front porch that was in rough shape.
Today, Kevin finds Tommy teaching them the basics of framing a deck.
Around the corner from the front porch is a problem our homeowners hope to eliminate. The fireplace in the living room was tucked away in a small alcove next to the front door, and there was no way to enjoy it. Kevin finds Mark McCullough and his apprentice, Krysten Poulin, taking the chimney down brick by brick.
Kevin returns to the front porch to check on progress. Tommy and the apprentices have finished the framing and will move on to the stairs.
Kevin travels to meet the homeowners and their interior designer, then watches as they use computer software to drag and drop patterns and color to design the tile floors in the mudroom and powder room.
Back at the house, Joe wants a wood-burning stove in the family room just like the one he had as a kid. Today he’s pitching in to help install the pipe. Kevin finds Joe and chimney expert Jonathan Hawkins on the second floor snaking the flue up through the roof.
